  • 1-2 cup vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-2 tablespoons seasoned salt
  • 1-2 cups light colored beer
  • 1 large onion sliced into rings


  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour and seasoned salt. Gradually add beer, one cup at a time, whisking to avoid lumps. Batter should be the consistency of pancake batter. Adding less beer will produce a thicker crust while adding more beer with add a thinner coating.
  • Add raw onion rings to the batter. Stir several times to ensure an even coating. Drop a single ring into the oil as a test. If the oil begins to bubble rapidly, you are ready to begin frying. Reduce heat to medium to prevent rings from browning to quickly
  • Working in batches, add rings to the skillet, trying not to allow rings to touch. Fry for about 3-5 minutes, turning once, until rings are golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with table salt and black pepper if desired.
